Some business leaders assume you must work yourself thin to achieve maximum success.
Not in my book.
A few years ago, I decided to put my phone away for an entire round of golf. Wow, what a game-changer. I didn’t turn pro, but my scores went down, and the engagement with the people I played with went up.
The other day I went to a restaurant with my fam for dinner, and they had a basket for everyone’s cell phones. Genius!
If you have to be accessible 24 hours a day, are you truly an effective leader, partner, parent, etc.?
Create boundaries for yourself and others. It will make you more productive, deliver better results, make better decisions, and you’ll be able to smell the roses along the day. #winning.
BTW- That’s my daughter at the end with an epic swing. She’s on her way to being better than all of us! ...
